Photography, like life, is a continuing process of studying and learning, having experiences, and growing. A major belief in my life has been to develop and use one's talents and skills to the best of their ability. Hopefully, you see some of the beauty of the world around us in the pictures presented at this web site. I am also hoping this will excite you and give you pause to seriously think about our environment. We have a responsibility to make sure that there is a legacy for future generations. I am also hoping this will motivate you to get away and to visit and explore the areas where these pictures were taken, especially our national parks.
Please feel free to contact me concerning any thoughts, ideas, requests, or questions that you may have concerning what is shown on this web site. My telephone number, and email address are listed on the Contact Page.
